intimateweddings.com is a good resource, as is bedandbreakfast.com. IW has all sorts of venue ideas, and B&B will allow you to browse through B&Bs with an icon next to B&Bs that host weddings. We had a 30 person wedding at a stunning B&B on the eastern shore of Maryland. I loved the experience.

I don’t that area well and elopement packages don’t seem to be in the forefront – so I don’t have any specific advice!

 

I do know that VBRO.com and HomeAway.com are great places to rent vacation homes.  I almost rented a 6 BR/6 BA house in Sundance Utah for our families.  Had an indoor pool, indoor theater room, rooms for everyone, mountain views!  We could have had the ceremony on the deck looking at the mountains. 

 

Other than that, I’d look for B&B’s and then visit each of their websites to see what they offer for small weddings.

Just another thought… and definitely requires a significant amount of travel, but have you thought about renting one of the big houses on the outer banks of north carolina. Mr. LK and I are in a wedding at an ocean front event home in the outer banks next year. It’s going to be amazing. Our friends found the house through Twiddy real estate.

I don’t know about that area, but I’d check vrbo.com for houses. I’ve had a lot of luck with that site!

@lovekiss:  I second the Outer Banks. I live here so if you have any questions just let me know. I am also a pastry chef and do wedding cakesSmile. It is beautiful here. If you get a place on the 4×4 beach it will be more private and secluded for a beach wedding with a beach house reception.

@mamaNash:  This place is pretty awesome and offers a weekend getaway in the Shasta Mountains of Northern CA. It is near the border of Oregon. http://shastaweddings.com/. It would make for an unforgettable destination wedding.

When it comes to coastal areas in the North East… Mr TTR and I LOVE… Maine, the teeny tiny seashore of New Hampshire, as well as Cape Cod & the Islands.  You could certainly rent a Beach House / Cottage in many of these Destinations.

As others have said VRBO is a good source as is FlipKey (they are associated with TripAdvisor… so you can find properties & reviews on the TA Website).  We’ve used FlipKey before, and had great success… they Gurantee their properties, which means what you see on line is what you get.

Want to go further south… then we love North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida.  Again lots of great spots in all those states (and the weather, and the water, will be a lot warmer for a June Wedding)

Hope this helps,
